New Year's Resolutions?

Thoughts from our friends @easyecotips - Perhaps if you're making New Year Resolutions? 😉


We can all play a role in the fight against global warming. According to recent studies, the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet is to modify your diet to include less meat.
We should all eat less meat because of the carbon emissions the meat industry produces, as well as other negative environmental impacts.
But not all meat has the same impact on the environment. By far, red meat and beef are the worst! You can start by cutting down on red meat, and then, why not going vegan?
You need proteine? You can find plenty in beans, lentils, tofu, nuts, and many other ingredients 😉 Easy!
